Resource Sharing

Resource Sharing (formerly known as Interlibrary Loan) allows you to request resources such as articles and books which are not available in the Claremont Colleges Library. If you find an item using the library's Search that you want to use and which the library does not own, the green Get This Item button in the item's record will lead you to an autofilled Resource Sharing request form. If you cannot find an item in the library's Search and wish to request it, please fill out a Resource Sharing request for the appropriate format (book, article, etc.) with as much detail as possible.

Once you submit your request:

  • Articles often arrive within 1-2 business days and will be sent to your email address as a PDF.
  • Books often arrive within 3 - 5 business days; their check out period is determined by the lending library. You will receive an email notification that your book has arrived and you can pick it up at the Main Services Desk. Faculty have the option to have the book delivered to their mailbox via campus mail.
